Reaction Terms of Detailed Chemistry

The reaction terms for detailed chemcial reaction are determined by a reaction mechanism of M chemcial reactions, i.e.

$\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^K \nu_{ji}^f S_i {(A_j , \beta_j,E_j)\atop \rightleftharpoons}
\sum_{i=1}^K \nu_{ji}^r S_i \qquad \qquad j=1,\dots,M\;.$

The entire production rate for each species is then given by

$\displaystyle \dot \omega_i = \sum_{j=1}^M (\nu_{ji}^r-\nu_{ji}^f)\biggl[ k_j^f...
...{n=1}^K\Bigl({\rho_n\over W_n}
\Bigr)^{\nu_{jn}^r} \bigg] \quad i=1,\dots,K\;, $

where the reaction rates are calculated by the Arrhenius laws

$\displaystyle k_j^{f/r}(T) = A_j^{f/r} T^{\beta_j^{f/r}}\exp (-E_j^{f/r}/{\cal R}T)\;.$
